Potomac Soccer Association is proud to announce that we will be forming both a Men's and a Women's PRO23 team for summer 2017. We are seeking talented and committed players born on or after 1/1/1994 (ability to roster several over-aged professional players to play and serve as role models of the game). Training sessions will be twice-a-week with approximately 6-8 league games in June and July. Contact Brian Wall, for more information.

ABOUT CCL PRO23
CCL PRO23 will provide former CCL players and current collegiate players an opportunity to find professional, meaningful training as well as superior competition during the summer months, (during their off-season) all while preparing them for a successful collegiate season in the fall.
“The CCL continues to be the progressive league in the country by adding CCL PRO23 to its player development pyramid,” said Danny Beamer, CCL President.
CCL PRO23 becomes the apex of the CCL Player Development Pathway. Clubs that participate in the CCL now extend the long-term developmental opportunities for soccer players ages eight through 23, and older.
“CCL PRO23 is a player retention opportunity creating a bridge between clubs and college programs. We (the CCL) have over 1,000 student-athletes playing collegiate soccer at all levels. We are excited to expand the CCL Player Development Pathway to players who are playing in college, and who would love to continue playing at their ‘home club’. The CCL produces top talent and fantastic match environments. College programs know they have a reputable league not only to find their next top talent but now a league to help enhance their program’s players in the off-season,” said Brian Kuk, CCL Executive Director.
“This is yet another CCL innovation and is timely especially with the growth of the game and with the W-League folding recently. The day is gone where a student-athlete comes home from college and has difficulty finding a truly competitive environment to train and play. CCL PRO23 is the destination and becomes a vehicle for the CCL and college programs to build an even greater relationship than already exists,” commented Bo Eskay, Executive Director, FC Frederick.
Unique to CCL PRO23 will be the use of up to five over-23 players that will allow for former professional players to join and become role models for the next generation of players.
CCL PRO23 will culminate with Division Champions and the CCL PRO23 Championships in July. Clubs will play up to seven division matches. Division champions will earn playoff spots into the CCL PRO23 Championships. The Championships will be hosted by CCL clubs and will be rotated annually.
Schedules, scores and standings will be posted on the league website.
